    Why would a band that uses a slap doghouse player need a drummer slapping the snare drum? It seems a little bit redundant and maybe even an intrusion on the ‘art of slap bass’.

    Hi Youngspanion

    I agree, the slap bass tends to be competing for the same air space as the snare.
    In fact, on Youtube there is a vidoe of Lee Rocker at a Bass convention with a lead guitarist and, Lee says “For this demonstration i have deliberately left out a drummer so you can appreciate the slap.”

    Just about sums it up
